Status: Local Wildlife Site (LoWS)||Access: Has previously been some level of apparent de facto public access|
Summary: The site is likely to support a number of species of principle importance, included in the UKBAP, as well as providing good habitat opportunities for reptiles, protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
Description: Former coastal grazing marsh which has never been ploughed. The grassland has some scrub development evident from Google Satellite photographs and there is clearly a good structural variety in the grassland.
Reason for interest: The site may well still support an important flora and fauna and is identified as a potential Local (County) Wildlife Site. General survey in all major groups is required (Thurrock Biodiversity Study 2006-11. Thurrock Greengrid Strategy, EECOS 2007).
